News: Tigers closer Joe Nathan has pitching coach Jeff Jones and bullpen coach Mick Billmeyer to thank for saving his season.

"They did some research and noticed my arm was two inches higher than it's ever been," Nathan said, per MLive.com. "And the only way I can do that is by pulling my head towards first base. That's the only way you're going to get your arm even higher, so I knew my head wasn't going towards the target, going towards the plate and everything was kind of out of whack.

"It was more with the alignment and keeping everything towards the target. It was making me have to work harder than I had to. They say drop the arm angle, but for me it was more keeping my head in position, which will naturally bring your arm out and away from your body, which lowers your arm angle a little bit."

Nathan got to work fixing the flaw in his pitching mechanics and started implementing a few changes, beginning with a June 19 outing against the Royals. Since then, he has a 3.38 ERA and has converted five of six save chances.

"At first, like anything, when you start to change something, it feels awkward," Nathan said. "I knew there was more zip behind (my pitches), I knew there was more whip in my arm and I was locating better. So I knew this was the way to go (since the adjustmant) and if I kept doing it it would get more and more comfortable. Now I'm starting to get a good feel for release point as far as breaking pitches and stuff like that."

News: Yankees reliever Shawn Kelley, who's pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings the last two days, said he feels like he did before a back injury sent him to the disabled list.

"The first handful of outings, there was still some concern about my back," he told The Journal News. "It felt fine, but when you walk around for a month and you can barely bend over, it tends to get ingrained in your mind. I’ve had a few weeks now straight where I haven’t had to wake up in the morning thinking about my back, and I think that’s allowed me to get back to where I was before I got hurt."

Kelley is 1-2 with a 3.86 ERA and four saves in five chances.

"Now I didn't know he threw it 97 [mph]. ... When he popped 97 last night, I asked [pitching coach] Mike [Maddux], 'He throws 97?' He said yeah."
